Pug 306 knocking on startup fixed - solara
Thought this may help others with similar problem.
Symptoms are car makes knocking/rattle type sound on startup.
First thought it was the coolant pipes knocking aginst bulkhead wall, but that was all secure.
Finally located problem with engine mounting bracket on timing belt side. Had to remove bracket by supporting engine with jack. On removal, problem was very apparent as the threaded rubber mount had worked loose. Toggling the loose rubber mount made the knocking noise. Unscrewed rubber mount fully, applied threadlock compound and retightened. No more knocking on startup!
